Canadian Bill Could Send Christians to Jail

A video (10 minutes) worth watching. Hate Speech laws have nothing to do with stopping Hate. They are about stopping Free Speech and Religious Freedom.

WCH: Preventing the Abuse of Public Health Emergencies

Lawful Criteria to Declare a State of Emergency

The World Council for Health (WCH) works with experts to develop legal briefs that present the lawful position on human rights issues and recommendations for asserting and protecting these rights. These legal briefs are written in a way that can be understood by specialised and non-specialised audiences and can be used in education, advocacy, and law initiatives such as investigations, inquiries, and litigation. Their most recent legal brief is entitled Preventing the Abuse of Public Health Emergencies. 

From the Summary section of the Legal Brief:

The abuse of emergency provisions over the past three years has again brought to the world’s attention the complicated relationship between the declaration of a ‘state of emergency’ and the protection of essential human rights. Controversially, the World Health Organization (WHO), an agency of the United Nations, ‘declared’ COVID-19 a pandemic on March 11, 2020. This was followed by many countries across the world instituting severe emergency measures, resulting in widespread violations of basic human rights.

Governments abused the declaration of a state of emergency, revealing a brash and cavalier indifference towards IHRL and the lawful limits to policymaking.

Indeed, emergency measures were misused “as a nefarious government technique, rather than an exceptional temporary measure.” Unlawful COVID-19-related pseudo-legal emergency regulations breached the fundamental human rights of billions of people globally.

The IHRL standards that authorities need to follow are clear regarding how limitations on essential human rights should be handled during public health emergencies. The requirements for any emergency measures derogating from covenant obligations are that they should, inter alia:
• respond to a genuine, imminent, and immense public or social need;
• be imposed by law and not imposed arbitrarily;
• be balanced and proportionate to the threat;
• be strictly required by the demands of the situation;
• be no more restrictive than needed to accomplish the purpose; and
• be non-discriminatory to any specific group.2

The international public health community should employ evidence-based policies to control the spread of disease and safeguard the public’s health without infringing basic human rights. From a legal perspective, there was no justification to respond differently to COVID-19 than to other transmissible diseases with similar crude mortality rates, such as certain types of influenza and other respiratory diseases.

Human rights standards and principles contained in the International Covenant on Civil and
Political Rights (ICCPR), the Siracusa Principles (attached hereto Annexure A), and the Paris Minimum Standards (attached hereto Annexure B), specific to public health emergencies, comprise effective, practical criteria that State Parties need to observe to in order to honor their treaty obligations with regard to protecting and ensuring the basic human rights of all within their national borders.

Article 4(1) of the ICCPR explicitly determines that:

In time of public emergency which threatens the life of the nation and the existence of which is officially proclaimed, the State Parties to the present Covenant may take measures derogating from their obligations under the present Covenant to the extent strictly required by the exigencies of the situation, provided that such measures are not inconsistent with their other obligations under international law …

The International Law Association Paris Minimum Standards of Human Rights Norms in a State of Emergency further define a public emergency as:

an exceptional situation of crisis or public danger, actual or imminent, which affects the whole population or the whole population of the area to which the declaration applies and constitutes a threat to the organized life of the community of which the State is composed.

Prior to the declaration of a state of emergency, the onus is on the government to show that the public health crisis ‘threatens the life of the nation’ and that this threat meets the following key criteria:
• It must be actual or imminent;
• Its effects must involve the whole nation;
• The continuance of the organized life of society must be endangered; and
• The threat or crisis must be exceptional in that the ordinary measures or controls for the preservation of public health, order, and safety are undoubtedly inadequate.

A public health emergency that does not meet any one of the above criteria or desiderata would not constitute a legitimate threat to ‘the life of the nation’. Any human rights-infringing public health measures instituted pursuant to such a public health emergency would be illegitimate in terms of normative standards of international human rights.

The Difference Between a Democracy and a Republic

By Tim Gamble

Here is an older PragerU video, but one well worth watching (or rewatching). Less than six minutes long, so you have time. On YouTube: The Difference Between a Democracy and a Republic - If you ask Americans to name their country’s form of government, most of them will say they live in a democracy. However, the real answer is more complicated (and unexpected) than that. Robert George, Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University, explains.

Augason Farms Long-Term Food Storage - This is where I get powdered butter, eggs, cheese, milk, and other long-term foods for my Survival Pantry. Shelf-life up to 20+ years. Good quality, good taste, good value. For my money (literally, since I am a paying customer), Augason Farms is the best long-term foods option. 

ROLOWAY Large Fireproof Document Bag. The ROLOWAY Large (17"x12"x5.8") Fireproof (to 2000°F) and Water-resistant Document Bag is perfect for your important documents, cash, and other valuables. 

The NKJV, American Patriot's Bible, The Word of God and the Shaping of America - One of my favorites, the New King James Version is literal, accurate, and easy-to-read for most modern folks. The American Patriot's Bible "shows how the history of the United States connects the people and events of the Bible to our lives in a modern world. The story of the United States is wonderfully woven into the teachings of the Bible." Lot's of articles and study notes showing the importance of God and the Bible to our nation's founding and subsequent history.

7 Units Of Blood, 8 Days In The Hospital

By Tim Gamble

I almost died. Literally. It took seven units of blood transfusions, two procedures (operations), and eight days in the hospital to save my life. Cancer. I didn't know. They removed my gallbladder, parts of my colon and intestines, and a large abscess that was on my liver. 

That's why I haven't posted in almost three weeks. I'm not out of the woods yet. But I am out of the hospital. Prayers are much appreciated. 

Important!!!!!!! Early detection is crucial when dealing with cancer. Mine wasn't. I don't want you to go through what I have the past couple of weeks. If you are 45 or older, and haven't been screened for colon cancer recently, I urge you to talk to your doctor about getting screened. Ask what other screenings you should get, depending on your age, health, family medical history, and other factors.

No one likes going to the doctor, especially when you seem healthy. Its inconvenient, time consuming, and seems like a waste of money. I wish like hell I had "wasted" more money on medical appointments before all this happened. 

I've had lots of time to think. I have many new insights on health, preparedness, survival, the importance of family/tribe, things left undone, priorities, relationships and a host of other topics. I learned the hard way who I can count on and who I can't (many surprises both ways). 

I am re-evaluating many things and will be making many changes. I will write about them as time permits in the coming weeks and months.

Mentally ill, physically ill, out-of-shape, unarmed, unhappy, self-loathing, self-censoring, and without hope

By Tim Gamble 
Join the Resistance! Subscribe by email (click this link)

Note: I posted this article back in August of last year, but it bears repeating. 

August 2023 - A couple of days ago, an account named @Illuminatibot made a very interesting, and accurate, post on Twitter: "They want you to be godless, sexless, genderless, childless, depressed, anxious, afraid, fat, drug addicted, lonely physically weak, mentally weak, in debt, isolated, living in a pod, eating bugs, and dependent on the state for everything."

To that list, I would add: They want you mentally ill, physically ill, out-of-shape, unarmed, unhappy, self-loathing, self-censoring, and without hope.  Arguably, they have been working towards these ends since at least the 1960s, if not before?

Why? It is simple, really. The weaker we are - physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually - the easier we are to manipulate and control. The less trust and hope we have in ourselves, our families, our God, and our traditional values, the more we will turn to them for guidance and help. 

The want us utterly dependent on the State for everything. They want us to blindly follow their approved experts, no matter what they say. They want us to become willing slaves of the State, trusting only in them. They want blind loyalty, with no competition from family ties, religious beliefs, traditions, or even commonsense. They want us to fear, loathe, and even hate those who think differently and are not willing to be slaves. 

How do we resist? It is simple, really. Don't be those things they want you to be. Work hard to become physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually strong. Don't fall for their indoctrination. Lose weight. Start working out. Get out of debt. Build savings. Reconnect with family and friends. Make new connections. Overcome your addictions. Read the Bible. Pray. Become self-reliant. Think for yourself. Seek ways to get out of the worldly system. Seek to build alternative systems. 

Simple. But not easy. It will be hard work. But if you value your life and your freedom, you must be willing to do the hard work. Or you can just sit on your couch, take it easy, watch some Netflix, eat some ice cream, and wait for the next DNA-altering vaccine to be mandated. The choice is yours.

Back before the 2020 election, I had an email subscriber list of almost 1,500 people (1,498 at its peak). Then, I was "cancelled" by Big Tech. In addition to getting kicked off Facebook and Twitter, my email subscriber list was deleted without warning by the tech company that managed it. I did not have a back up copy (I was na├»ve and trusted that company). 

Now, I have a different company managing my email lists (Follow.It) that is not only pro free speech, but has been extremely helpful to me. Great customer service! I am still a long way from 1,500 subscribers again. But, with your help I'm getting closer. 

Thank you for supporting this website.

Woke Google's Gemini AI Catastrophe

By Tim Gamble

Just a quick note to bring my readers' attention to a very interesting video. Most of you are are probably aware of Google's AI disaster earlier this week. The best analysis of the situation that I've seen so far is this short video (less than 7-minutes) by Vivek Ramaswamy. It is well worth watching, as it points to the very real and very dangerous intersection of Artificial Intelligence, bias, and political ideology.
